This beer had a nice dark look to it and smelled of bananas and chocolate. However, I did not like the taste. I did not taste chocolates or bananas, just a bitter malt. I would not drink again.

I didn't know what exactly to expect from this beer, but I did expect to at least taste banana or chocolate. I tasted neither. It tasted more like a typical stout, rich and a little bitter. Not a bad beer, but disappointing nonetheless.

Tastes like those banana candies you get from the vending machine for a quarter. Way too artificial tasting.
